Achieve email continuity with Mimecast.
Email continuity is a critical priority for enterprises today. With email serving as your organization's primary form of communication and collaboration – not to mention the single most important repository of corporate memory and information – your users' productivity is extremely limited when email goes down. Yet traditional email continuity solutions require expensive replication and mirrored services that your IT budget can't accommodate.
As a leader in cloud email services for the enterprise, Mimecast provides email continuity services that reduce recovery time to almost zero after an email outage, without the expense, complexity, hardware or software of email continuity with traditional on-premises solutions.
Mimecast Mailbox Continuity provides real-time access to email during outages, enabling your users to continue to use email while core email infrastructure is offline. Administrators manage email continuity events through the Mimecast Administration Console, initiating and controlling failover during outages. Mimecast email continuity services support variable durations in outages – from 24 hours through seven days of full failover.
Here's how Mimecast's email continuity service works: when your standard email client goes offline, administrators can trigger an email continuity event and switch all email clients to send and receive email directly through the Mimecast platform. This enables IT staff to work at finding the root cause of the outage without being slowed by an overwhelming number of helpdesk calls.
During the outage, users have secure access to their email and calendar information at any time on any device from any location. Once the email server is back online, Mimecast's email continuity service automatically reconnects and synchronizes all emails sent or received during the outage.
Mimecast's email continuity service is backed by a 100% service availability SLA, made possible by a highly-resilient network of geographically-dispersed data centers with built-in redundancy.
